Morgan Manuel

Morgan previously completed a BA (Hons) degree in geography and political science at Memorial, where his research examined the political economies of church closure while under the supervision of Dr. Nicholas Lynch.

Morgan’s current research focuses on the housing experiences of international migrants in Northern Canadian cities. Specifically, he hopes to explore the direct links between employment and housing for immigrants to the Canadian North to help identify potential policy recommendations that support immigrant housing initiatives in Northern Canadian cities.
